What is a Mommy Makover?
If you are a mother who has finished having children and you are unable to lose your pregnancy weight through diet and exercise, then Solomon Cosmetic Center in Tampa recommends having a Mommy Makeover. This makeover involves having any combination of several normal cosmetic surgery procedures including a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, breast lift, and liposuction. Each of these procedures or any combination of these procedures can help you regain your pre-pregnancy body. You are considered a good candidate for this makeover if you maintain a healthy weight, don’t smoke, and have realistic expectations. Here are common surgeries involved in a typical mommy makeover.
Giving birth can do a number on your stomach. No matter how much you exercise, your stomach may remain saggy and out of shape. A great solution to this problem is tummy tuck surgery. During this surgical procedure, a surgeon will make an incision along your lower abdomen, and then manipulate and contour the skin, muscle and tissue. The surgery will take two to five hours to complete and the results can last at least several years. It takes about two to four weeks to recover from the surgery. Your recovery time will be quicker if you eat a healthy diet, avoid strenuous activities, and get plenty of rest.
Tampa Breast Augmentation and Breast Lift
After having a child, your breasts may start to sag. They also might shrink after breastfeeding. Breast augmentation and breast lift surgery can increase the size of a your breasts and lift them so that they look perky again. During the procedure, Dr. Solomon will make an incision in the crease of the breast, around the nipple or under the arm. Then, he will insert the implant into the pocket and close the incision with stitches. Swelling and soreness is common for a few weeks after surgery. It’s important to wear a compression bandage for extra support and avoid strenuous activities for at least two weeks.
Liposuction can remove fat from various parts of your body including hips, stomach, thighs and buttocks. During this procedure, Dr. Solomon will inject a sterile solution and anesthetic into the area that’s being treated. Then, he will make small cuts into the skin and place a thin tube under the skin to suction the fat out of the body. It is common to experience some bruising and swelling after the procedure. The results of this procedure are long lasting if you stay active and maintain healthy weight.
